Greg Peterson: A message for struggling farmers

Share Article

Things are tough out there at the moment, whether it be market conditions, or extreme weather. But I just want to say that as a farmer, you’re not defined by how much you raise in a year, the yields you get – you’re defined by your significant worth as a human being. Lots of people are struggling right now, so if you are dealing with mental health problems, please ask for help.

We are taking part in the Legacy Farmer Academy, which helps farmers deal with pressures, whether personal or professional. Check it out.
